Maybelline Color Show - Downtown Brown

I think I'm falling in love with chocolate colored nail polishes! I only have a couple browns, but this is one that I can really dig into. Downtown Brown is the first polish I've picked up from Maybelline's new Color Show line, and a really unique color to my collection. It's part of Maybelline's Limited Edition fall collection which has a few awesome duochrome colors, but only one that I thought was really unique. Downtown Brown has a rich warm brown base with a green to teal to blue/violet duochrome shimmer. In most light it looks brown with a silvery shimmer, but in the right light, magic!

This is three coats (though it looked pretty awesome at two) with a coat of Seche Vite for shine. The formula was good, which is a refreshing change from the goopy messes I've been using lately.

Yummy! It reminds me of mint chocolate chip icecream and Ande's mints.  If  you're looking for a good fall polish or love browns, I definitely recommend picking this one up!
